The space station dodges debris from a Russian anti-satellite test

The International Space Station (ISS) has just taken evasive action to avoid a fragment of a satellite destroyed by a Russian anti-satellite test in November 2021.

On Monday (Oct. 24) at 8:25 p.m. EDT (0025 GMT Oct. 25), the ISS team fired the engines on Progress 81a Russian cargo ship attached to the station, a total of five minutes and five seconds to avoid the wreckage, according to a NASA statement (opens in a new tab).
